Don't Forget To Pack These Affordable Faux Fur Coats For That Winter Getaway

While genuine fur pieces are glamorous things to own, they have largely fallen out of favour these days as the world increasingly focuses on preserving the environment and adopting ethical practices. High street labels like Mango and H&M are keeping track of their carbon footprint and implementing eco-friendly processes, and some luxury fashion houses have made a commitment to go fur-free, such as Burberry, Michael Kors and Versace. In fact, Donatella Versace told 1843 magazine in 2017 that she doesn’t “want to kill animals to make fashion. It doesn’t feel right”.

Faux fur garments are a great conscious alternative — while they are not as warm or soft as the real deal, they are still as much a style statement. Here are 12 pieces you can get cosy in on your next getaway.

Double breasted faux fur coat by Zara, S$159
Sometimes all we need is a pop of colour to brighten up the mood. Do this with a vermilion red faux fur coat. This chic piece from Zara will stand out when you wear it with an all black outfit. Leopard printed faux fur coat by H&M, S$159
Channel a rock star vibe by pairing this leopard print faux fur coat with a pair of black leather pants and a black silk blouse. Checkered faux fur coat by Mango, S$199
Tame this loud green jacket by going casual for the rest of your outfit. Wear it with a pair of denim bootcut jeans, a white oversized knit and some ankle booties. Short zip jacket by H&M, S$109
White’s a versatile colour and goes well with anything. Bring this jacket from H&M along for your vacation for an effortless look. Borg coat by Topshop, S$159
Lovers of the utilitarian style will adore this sophisticated forest green faux fur jacket. Complete the look with a camel turtleneck pullover, a pair of cargo trousers and some black combat boots. Double face biker jacket by Bershka, S$119
This cream coloured faux fur biker jacket will be a perfect alternative to a camel wool coat. We like that it’s edgy yet in a feminine shade. Dress it up with a pleated wool dress and a pair of thigh-high leather boots. Furry hooded parka by Mango, S$199

You can never go wrong with a black jacket — either dress it up with a yellow satin midi dress and a pair of heeled booties, or down with a grey cashmere sweater, some black jeans, and a pair of chelsea boots. Faux fur jacket by H&M, S$179
Go for a statement jacket if you want to make maximum impact with minimal effort, like this show-stopping piece in multi-coloured stripes from H&M. Pair it with a simple turtleneck pullover and a pair of flare jeans for this baby to pop. Faux fur jacket by Madewell, S$162

Look smart and sleek with a long line fleece coat that sports structured lapel details. You’d be both warm and stylish in the cold when you pair it with a wool midi skirt and a pair of thigh high boots. Faux fur utility jacket by Monki, £65 (S$116)
Try making a statement by layering this casual, faux fur utility jacket on top of a denim jacket of a similar style. Finish the look with a pair of wide-leg wool trousers and a faux leather shirt.
